The Norva Theatre (which is named for Norfolk, Virginia) originally opened in 1922, as Norfolk’s first true movie palace, and sat just over 2,000. Though nowhere near as ornate as Thomas W. Lamb’s Loew’s State Theatre, which opened four years later (now the Jeanne and George Roper Performing Arts Center), the Norva Theatre nonetheless was the grande dame of Norfolk’s downtown movie houses for decades.
After the revitalization of the long-dormant downtown Norfolk in recent years, including the old long-closed Norva Theatre, the former movie palace was transformed into the city’s most popular and exciting concert venue.
Offering three levels and around 1,500 seats, with excellent accoustics, high-tech sound and lighting, and an industrial appearance inside (though the exterior, including its marquee, retain their 1920’s appearance), the Norva Theatre has become of the THE place in Norfolk to see and be seen.
Every sort of musical genre from punk to R & B, heavy metal to dance and everything in between has been featured on the Norva Theatre’s large stage.
